What is the Parent Association?
Our Parent Association consists of a group of dedicated parents and guardians who work together for the benefit of the school community. Our aim is to create an engaging and vibrant hub for all students and to foster a strong and supportive community spirit among the families of the school.
Together, we create this environment by providing many fun activities for both the children and their families throughout the year. Another goal of the Parent Association is to facilitate fundraising opportunities that can provide the school with financial support to purchase items that enhance the enjoyment of school for all the children. Recently we have purchased new chrome books, a new selection of readers for each classroom and are now focused on a large landscaping project for the school that will see a kitchen garden, new play spaces and an improved aesthetic for the school.

Joining the Parent Association is a great way to keep informed, help make decisions about school events and fundraising activities, and make our school great! The Parent Association meets approximately once per month during the school term. It’s a great way to build friendships with other families at the school.
